Zaniri Golden Retrievers are pleased to announce the planned breeding of Leif to Ninja. Ninja is due to come into season in early December. This litter will be whelped at the home of Mary Shillabeer, near Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, British Columbia.  

Leif has the outstanding qualities of a multi-purpose Golden Retriever. He is
very easy to live with, biddable, loves his birds and has an amazing natural focus for whatever sport he is asked to do. Leif is 23 inches tall and weighs 73 pounds. He is a very athletic boy and has excelled in many sports. In hunt tests, Leif is very steady and quiet. He is an excellent marker and is incredible at holding a line. He is a true partner on his blinds. His launch in the water is beautiful. Leif earned his TDX title at 13 months, tracking with confidence. He has an incredible nose! Leif has a beautiful, natural obedience style with many High in Trials from the first time we stepped into the ring. He has also earned many High Combined awards on his journey to his UDX and OTCH. He is a true team partner with a strong desire to please. Leif is a very handsome boy with moderate structure, soft expression and beautiful pigment. He has a full dentition and no allergies. Leif is a joy in Linda and Bill Sanders lives.

Ninja come from a very strong bitch line. She is a dynamic working girl, with a good on/off switch. At 22 inches tall and 62 pounds, she is balanced, structurally correct and physically sound. She has a full dentition and no allergies. Ninja is a quick learner. At three years old, she has her Utility Dog title (Canadian OTCH), 13 Master passes and 355 HRC Points. In 2021, she was #3 Junior (Derby) Field Trial Dog in Canada. Ninja is a strong water dog, fast on land and she is steady and quiet on the line. She loves to hunt pheasants, and points before she flushes. She is up to play any game I ask of her and is quiet and relaxed in the house. 

This is Ninja’s first breeding. I am honoured and so excited, that Linda Sanders, with the blessing of Jeanne Von Barby (Elysian Golden Retrievers) has agreed to share her outstanding boy, Leif, with Ninja. We expect structurally correction, biddable working dogs, that will be a joy to train and live with. Puppies should arrive mid-February and go home mid-April…if Ninja does it all as scheduled. Priority will be given to working homes, but active pet homes may be considered. These pups will need a job!

If interested, please contact Mary Shillabeer by email, 
This is a co-bred litter with Laureen and Joanne Kinney.
